The Stark County Public Health Emergency Response Plan (PHERP) establishes the basis for coordination of the four local health departments (Alliance City Health Department, Canton City Public Health, Massillon City Health Department, and the Stark County Health Department), resources, and response, to provide public health and medical services during an emergency or disaster.  We invite you to view the Stark County Public Health Emergency Response Plan, and please feel free to ask any questions regarding the plan itself or our planning efforts with our community partners.
